“I needed clothes and you clothed me…” Matthew 25:36
When the Coronavirus started gaining ground and we knew we weren’t going to be able to have Club Nights with the teen families in the month of April we thought that the plans we had with an organization called His Little Feet were going to have to be set aside to another time. So much for all the shoe sizes we had collected.
But, then, everything fell into place. His Little Feet wanted to go ahead and get all the NEW NAME-BRAND tennis shoes they’d collected for approximately 60 of the YoungLives teens and little ones into their hands, ummm – I mean, onto their feet. A lot of communication and logistics had to happen (everything is just more complicated with the social distancing) and then, we were able to go pick up the shoes. Once in our possession, they were bagged individually for each family, and since we felt it was about time to get a second round of diapers and baby wipes out to the teen families, we added these logistics into the mix as well! All of it done keeping within the social distancing guidelines. Oh yeah, one more thing, these shoes were already sorted by each recipients name for us AND a special little hand-written note of encouragement tucked into each pair.
Honestly, the people that we get to meet along the way in this ministry continues to blow us away. I mean really…new shoes for each of our teen parents? Who does this???? Thank you His Little Feet – you have really made an impression on us!
